“Tidemaster 301”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

We just returned from staying at the Tidemaster (Unit 301). The unit was a basic beach condo, comfortable enough but no frills. The furnishings are a little dated but that is to be expected. Overall it was fine for what we were looking for at that price point. My only complaints were that the cabinets smelled musty so we ended up leaving our food out on the counter, which wasn't a big deal. The other one was a BIG one for me. The patio railings were spaced so far apart that they pose a safety concern. My 22 month old son was with us and we wouldn't let him out there due to the fear that he could fit through the railings. All the units are like this but a few units have chosen to weave fencing through theirs to make it safer. my husband was actually able to fit his head through them up to his ears. He thought he could put his whole head through but didn't want to chance trying it. That said, if you don't have small children then that wouldn't be an issue for you.

I have been to North Myrtle Beach and Myrtle Beach 12-15 times and this property would rank in the top two. We rented a 3 bedroom unit on the first floor. One big advantage of this for us was the proximity to getting to the pool and beach quickly. Often we took the stairs which was just outside our unit. The elevators were very fast. One thing I noticed here is that the stairways and elevators were clean and did not smell like other properties where we have stayed in the past. On the plus side.... Our unit had 4 beds and a large enough living space. The condo is only 5 blocks from main street which is an easy walk up to the Ocean Drive pavilion and restaurants. The beach when we were there has a very easy slope from the high tide mark to the low tide, no sudden drop offs which is great if you are there with small children. At loaw tide, the beach was very wide. Since this is the north end of North Myrtle Beach, highway 17 where just about everything is, is not too crowded. I see comments about this beiing an older building, but that in some ways works to its advantage. Some of the newer and much larger complexes have extremely crowded beaches. On the down side, and this would be nit picking, there is no covered parking and most parking is across the street.

Room Tip: Check out VRBO.com as an alternate. You may find a better deal here.

This was our first stay at Tidemaster. Our 1 bedroom unit was clean and quiet, but the couch smelled musty as if something had spilled on it and was never cleaned. The king bed was comfortable and the oceanfront balcony was direct and not angled, as many 1 or 2 bedroom condos can be. These condos are in an older building so, unfortunately, sounds of showers running and kitchen sinks being used could be heard. The price for the 1st week of June was very reasonable.

We love the Tidemaster. It was another wonderful vacation. We rented the Tidemaster again through Condo-World June 11th-18th. Check in was easy, the unit was clean, well stocked and very roomy for a one bedroom. There were bunk beds in the hallway and a sofa bed in the living room. The view from the balcony is beautiful. The beach is just a few steps away. It is within walking distance to Main street with many restaurants, and dance clubs. We spent the evenings at Duck's and Fat Harold's learning the "Shag" and listen to great DJ's and Bands. Can't wait until next year.

Room Tip: Not a bad room in the Condo. All are Ocean Front. We have stayed in four different units and all w...

This is our 3rd year at the Tidemaster. We absolutely love it. We even thought about buying a unit. It is an older Condo, but kept in excellent condition. It is not fancy, but it just feels like home with a beautiful beach right outside your door. This year we only had 2 teenagers with us so we tried the 1 bedroom. Still very roomy with bunk beds in the hall and a sofa bed in the living room. Since it is not a high rise, the beach is less crowded and absolutely beautiful. The location is perfect. We love main street and all the shag clubs. Fat Harold's and Ducks are great fun and we were at one or another each evening. There are plenty of places to eat within walking distance so a car is not a necessary. We will be back next June. We already miss it.

TideMaster Condominiums is a quiet, family-oriented place in a prime location. Located on Ocean Drive in North Myrtle Beach, it is within walking distance of Main Street with its restaurants, night life, and amusements for the kids. Check-in was handled smoothly by Condominium Rental Services (CRS) a short distance away. Although there is limited parking on site, there is a convenient drop-off zone with additional parking readily available across the street. Unit 203 has a great view overlooking the pool, dunes, and the beach. The spacious one-bedroom unit, which can sleep six, has plenty of storage and was furnished with all the basics. The unit is clean and well-maintained with full-kitchen, 2 TVs, DVD player, and washer/dryer. CRS was easy to work with and we look forward to our return visit.

We stayed in unit 501 booked through Century 21 Thomas. Easy check in and check out.

The unit was clean and consisted of 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. All units are ocean front.

I can't say anythin bad or spectacular about the place. Just a vacation condo rental.
